LA Conference post round up

I wasn't shirking my Cocoastompian duties these last few weeks, but blogging at the 2010 SCBWI International Summer Conference on the official conference blog. See? I'm at the end, where conferencegoers kept leaving their leftover plates of cookies and candy and coffee. I'm no dummy.

A BIG FRIENDLY GIANT thanks to Alice Pope, Jolie Stekly, Sarah Stern, Lee Wind, Suzanne Young, Martha Brockenbrough, Aaron Hartzler and everybody at SCBWI HQ. I love being on Team Blog and wish we could have a conference every weekend.

Here are my posts, grouped by subject, sort of.
